Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Jeán & Stephanie

We are absolutely in awe of your skill, professionalism and ability to capture images in a way that not only conveys the emotion, but also makes us feel as if we were clearly reliving the memory through the photo. Nothing felt staged (from both our engagement shoot to our wedding day) and we so enjoyed how you let us absolutely be ourselves and worked the magic in and around that. Christelle, we don't have enough words to say thank you, but thank you indeed!
